Wednesday, August 1 – Thursday, August 16

Assistant to Jean Renoir during his greatest years, Jacques Becker (1906-1960) perhaps outdid his mentor in versatility, from his Parisian “youth trilogy” (Antoine and Antoinette, Rendezvous in July, and Edouard and Caroline) to vintage French Noir and the toughest of prison films, effortlessly using long takes, bullet-quick cutting, exhilarating location shooting, slices of life, and inevitable melodrama – with a warmth and zest for people throughout.

Presented with support from The George Fasel Memorial Fund for Classic French Cinema
